    I think the <compose> key should be _inside_ the combining sequence, killing
    the char before it.

    e <compose> ' ->

    and also

    ' <compose> e ->

    In other words: on mechanical typewriters the <backspace> does not erase the
    backspaced char.

    If the <compose> just emulates this mechanical backspace then the amount of
    relearning needed is evidently minimal.
